Boulter's Lock and Weir

Boulter's Lock, one of the most famous locks on on the River Thames, lies 3.35 km (2.08 mi) downstream from Cookham Lock and 3.43 km (2.13 mi) upstream from Bray Lock.

The lock area and adjacent Ray Mill island are very popular, and a wonderful destination on a fine day for spending some time by the River Thames.
